Corporate strategy and planning

Mae’r dudalen yma ar gael yn Gymraeg.

We produce an annual Forward Work Programme which outlines our priorities and key initiatives over the coming year.

These initiatives have been carefully selected as the areas we feel represent the greatest opportunity for and risk to current and future energy consumers. The work programme provides information on the work to be undertaken to support our key initiatives and priorities, as well as financial data and information on our planned deliverables and performance indicators for the year ahead

Our key initiatives are:

  1. Enabling a better functioning retail market
  2. Facilitating change in the energy system
  3. Learning from the first RIIO framework and setting RIIO-2 up for success
  4. Introducing competition into monopoly areas
  5. An authoritative source of quality analysis

Alongside these initiatives, this document also sets out our ongoing core business activities, explains the upcoming work for Ofgem E-Serve and incorporates our Simplification Plan into the Forward Work Programme. Our Simplification Plan lists the main projects we plan to undertake in support of our better regulation agenda, over the course of the year.

If you have any questions about any aspect of Ofgem’s planning process please contact Julie Black: BI&C@ofgem.gov.uk
